Sonu Nigam takes the cleric’s fatwa head on, shocks everyone by shaving his head off


Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam, who created uproar with his tweets on the use of loudspeakers at mosques, addressed the media at his residence today. Much to everyone’s shock, the singer got his head shaved by celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim taking head on a fatwa by a Kolkata-based cleric that said that one who shaves off Sonu’s head and garlands him with torn shoes, will get a reward of Rs 10 lakh.

The singer, known for several hits like ‘Abhi Mujhme Kahin,’ ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ and ‘Suraj Hua Maddham,’ started off the press interaction by saying that he didn’t expect such a simple thing to become a topic of national debate. Clarifying that he was not anti-Muslim, Sonu Nigam said, “I have considered Mohammed Rafi as my guru. My driver is a Muslim. I am not anti-Muslim, I consider myself secular.”

As Sonu Nigam left everyone shocked by getting his head shaved off, the media asked him as to why he did it. The singer said, “It’s not an agitation, not a challenge that I am throwing someone’s way. I am shaving my head just to show that the person cutting my hair is a Muslim. It’s all about interpreting things the right way. I exhort the media to present it like that and not in a confrontational way.”

For those not in the know, Sonu Nigam, on Monday, courted controversy as he labelled the sound of the morning Aazan as “forced religiousness” after being woken up by it. The singer, in a series of tweets, said that he didn’t believe in any temple or gurudwara using electricity to wake up people who didn’t follow a particular religion. He even went on to call it “gundagardi.”
